Numb3r5 don't lie
The Nokia 5 has the generic phonebook/dialer app with the list of favorites, the call log and the contacts are all tabs within the same app. The dialer is summoned with a tap on a button. Smart dial is supported too.
The Nokia 5 has a single loudspeaker - the Nokia 6's stereo setup didn't make the cut. The lone driver can pump out a lot of decibels if the tune is right and it scored a Good rating in our three-pronged test. It kept its sound distortion-free even at max volume, too.

For text unput the Nokia 5 relies on the Google Gboard keyboard. It's a great solution, offering predictive text (they all do), emoji, GIFs, search right from the keyboard, and plenty of customizability.
Delays? I was looking for Nokia 5 ! Has delays in normal use or in games ?
